Lincoln Park North Pond City View

Happy Friday from North Pond in Lincoln Park! Signs of Spring are slowly but surely popping up and for that I am grateful.

I am also grateful for March Madness and that I always pick the Ivy League teams to do better than they should. My bracket is in great shape going into today and a victory for the Spartans will make for a stellar way to kickoff the weekend.

Enjoy the day, friends!

An Ode to March and Tom Izzo

Who is Tom Izzo?

Two facts: I am a die-hard Michigan State fan and Tom Izzo is the best coach in the history of the world.

In conclusion: the month of March is the best. Logic defied the assumption Spartans make every year that our team will do well in the tournament (because good lord, that regular season was abysmal) but I am so glad I didn’t retire my lucky MSU socks/glitter koozie/candle/shirt/jacket/hat prematurely because on Saturday, I will put everything back on, go to the corner bar and get ready to cheer my face off during the Final Four.

March Madness & My Very First Bracket

adminUncategorized%s Comments


I filled out my first ever bracket for a team (league? group?) with some girlfriends for March Madness and I am so into it. The password to join said team was “fab”- clearly, this is a very, very serious bracket.

I think I am off to a good start! Pitt was my first loss and my hatred of Michigan made it impossible for me to pick them to win but other than that, this is super fun and am so excited to be invested in the Tournament more than just cheering on Michigan State!

Who is obviously going to take it all. Obviously. Go Green!
